Williams, the 2021 Sun Belt Conference Freshman of the Year, was the leading goal scorer among all true freshmen in the league. She finished with six goals and an assist for 13 points in 10 league fixtures with three of her six goals winning the contest. She finished the season with seven total goals, tied for the team lead, as the Red Wolves capped a third-straight season with 10 or more wins.
Jordan Montgomery blanked his old teammates over five innings and Nolan Arenado drove in the lone run as the St. Louis Cardinals handed the New York Yankees their season-high fourth straight loss, 1-0 Saturday night.

There was no Long Hot Summer Day—his signature walk-up song as a Cardinal—playing over the stadium loudspeakers when Carpenter stepped into the batter’s box for his turn in the top of the first inning on Friday night at Busch. But the ovation for the 36-year-old slugger was so thunderous that you wouldn’t have been able to hear the music, anyway.
